Why Dottie Armstrong chose Texas Gulf Coast

This property has been owned by the family since the 1980s and has been used for family vacations ever since. We love coming here to our own little place on the Island! There have been many great memories made here, and the tradition continues with a new generation of kids. This isn't just a business to us... this is where we enjoy down time with our own families.

Saida is a gated community with 24 hour security.

Great beach access!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect! It had great access to the beach and was very close to the pool without being too noisy. It was very comfortable for my family of 5, and everything was very clean. The furnishings were up to date, and the kitchen was well stocked. It is close to all the things you want to do in South Padre. The owner Dottie was a pleasure to deal with. This is the only place we will stay on our future trips to the island.

Weekend at SPI

  • 5 of 5

I was able to share a fabulous weekend with a group of friends in this condo! It had all the features of living at home, but the best part, we were on the beach. The location is great to be within walking distance to the beach and many restaurants. The condo was clean and up to date. I would highly recommend this condo and I look forward to staying here again!

Wonderful condo/excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this condo for a week and had a fantastic time. The condo provided all the amenities we could have hoped for. The layout was spacious and the condo had plenty of updates. The location to the beach and area restaurants was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this condo and would certainly choose again for our next trip to the island.

Best place we've stayed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to SPI many, many times over the last 20 years. This is our favorite place we have stayed ever! Truly the greatest location! Immediate pool and beach access and was perfect for our family! My kids kept saying "we have a pool in our backyard!" We loved it. Dottie was over-accommodating and easy to reach when I forgot our access code, too.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We came down with the kids over Spring Break (yeah, I know...what were we thinking?!?), and had a wonderful time despite the crowds. The room itself is very nice. Well-furnished, plenty of room, comfortable beds, tv's in each room, easy-to-use kitchen...and a great view out the back window. Plus being able to walk out the back door and get right to the pool and beach. Talk about convenience! I appreciated that security controlled access to the complex, keeping out people who weren't staying there.

Lots to do at South Padre. We have not been down here in years, and the kids decided it was time to come again. The Sea Turtle Rescue place was a big hit, as was the Birding and Nature Center. I took an early-morning run on the beach; very peaceful. The kids' favorite things were walking out on the jetty and going to the beach. Plus the t-shirt shopping, of course. For a couple of beach excursions we headed north until the road ended, and found a much quieter stretch of sand. Normally we just do the beach near the condo, but as I mentioned it was crowded due to spring break.

Something we tried new this time was the mercado in Brownsville. I miss going across to Matamoros. However we found some cool stuff--shirts, blankets, pottery and the usual stuff--at Mercado Juarez in Brownsville (Elizabeth Street around 10th Street). Not the same as going across unfortunately, but it'll do.

Overall opinion: HIGHLY recommend this condo. We were on the go most of the time, but it was a really nice home-for-now to come back to. Owner was responsive and easy to deal with. Looking forward to next time!

Highly Recommend - perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a great location and very comfortable. It's on the first floor which makes unloading and loading so quick and easy. I have stayed in Saida before but never on the first floor, so I dreaded going to the grocery store because of hauling groceries up and down the elevator. I was able to park very close to the front door, and it was very easy. It's also very close to the pool and beach access. The kids were able to go back and forth between the condo, pool and beach with ease. We cooked many of our meals in the condo (which is easer with kids), and the kitchen was well stocked. The kids felt very comfortable there, and we all slept well. I would recommend to anyone, and we will stay there again!
